Panel 82 by Pearl Der

Heres the progress of panel #82 by Pearl Der.,
This is an good example of a perfect mural mosaic panel:
1. It a great piece of art on its own without the mural
2. It maintains the individual style of the artist
3. The shapes and colors work perfectly in the mural

Creating Panel 150

This was my demo board for the work shop on Tuesday.
I picked board #150 to commemorate St. Albert's 150th anniversary.

The board is a pretty boring warm grey color and has a dark line to the left corrner.

We had a great group of artists show up... (a bit intimidating)

The painting I wanted to do was the mission chapel with a Catholic Priest playing a violin (or fiddle)

Keeping in the mostly warm grey hues...

The finished panel #150
Lacombe Mission Chapel "that gave birth to the City of St. Albert"

The Project Begins

Today marks the day we begin the St. Albert mural mosaic and create a legacy project for thousands to enjoy for years to come.

Although we have been working on the project for threee months already the artists today will get their panels to paint.

Over 100 artists have already signed on to contribute and St. Albert will be proud of their efforts for sure.
